Suppose it is inconceivable for an NFL participant to win a collusion case towards the league?
Bryant McKinnie says it is VERY doable — and he is residing proof.
The ex-NFL lineman says, identical to Colin Kaepernick, he filed a grievance towards the NFL again in 2002 when he felt the Minnesota Vikings and Okay.C. Chiefs had colluded towards him and one other participant.
On the time, McKinnie was attempting to work out his rookie deal — and was pissed the Vikings had been providing him a smaller signing bonus than a participant who was taken AFTER him in the draft.
McKinnie claims the Vikings and the Chiefs had secretly teamed up to pay him (the seventh decide) and Ryan Sims (the sixth decide) lower than the Cowboys paid Roy Williams (the eighth decide).
Bryant says the Vikings ultimately folded and paid him what he needed — however solely as a result of his workforce had robust proof to show his declare.
He ultimately dropped the case and signed his deal — so, technically he did not “win” however he acquired what he needed.
Backside line — Bryant believes collusion is actual and Colin has an actual shot to win his case.
